Joy Kills Sorrow and Annalivia
Two exciting Boston area bands bring outstanding acoustic music to the Lily Pads stage.
Joy Kills Sorrow
We are very happy to welcome Boston's Joy Kills Sorrow, who showcase a range of talents and influences, ranging from bluegrass to jazz, indie folk and Americana. They come to us just following the release of their great new disc, This Unknown Science.
Founding member Matthew Arcara, a subtle and expressive guitarist, was the 2006 winner of Winfield's National Flatpicking Championship and has performed with such luminaries as Darol Anger. Mandolin virtuoso Jacob Jolliff, is Berklee's first full-scholarship mandolin student and a veteran performer, having toured professionally since age eleven and shared the stage with mandolin legends David Grisman and Mike Marshall. Wesley Corbett, a banjoist of uncommon facility and grace, was featured in the August 2008 issue of Banjo Newsletter and has toured nationally with Crooked Still and The Biscuit Burners. Emma Beaton, the 2008 Canadian Folk Music Awards' Young Performer of the Year, adds an earthy, powerful presence to the band. And bassist Bridget Kearney, winner of the 2006 John Lennon Songwriting Contest, is largely responsible for Joy Kills Sorrow's inimitable sound, thanks to her impeccable musicality and distinctive songwriting style.
At the cutting edge of acoustic and traditional music, Annalivia fuses old and new world sounds to create an authentic new sound, both steeped in tradition and alive with new energy, innovation and originality.
Drawing from the musical traditions of Appalachia, Cape Breton, Scotland, England and Ireland, the members of Annalivia also write their own material, including inventive, quirky fiddle tunes and lushly arranged songs. Annalivia is made up of seasoned musicians who have toured with the likes of Cathie Ryan, John Whelan, Dewey Balfa, and Adrienne Young.
The members of Annalivia - Liz Simmons, Flynn Cohen, Emerald Rae, Mariel Vandersteel and Stuart Kenney are equally at home playing a set of traditional Scottish tunes as they are performing a ballad from the Appalachian mountains.
